my heartbreak today

Heartbroken watching this.

The full video of other children

That moment after she says "In Hadabah", you can literally see the gears in her mind turn into the realization that her father his gone, she's been forced from her home, and is alone.

For that fleeting second, she feels alone. She feels hopeless. She's too young to understand it, but she's a human being and feels the pain.

The way her smile drops. The way her brow drops and her eyes convey every ounce of pain she's feeling. 

And then someone asks when she last ate. She's at a refugee camp. But suddenly someone, in this evil and unfair world that took her home and her father away, SOMEONE, shows her compassion, and asks about her well being. Someone else cares. And at almost the exact moment she begins to break, compassion finds her again. That smile at the end may be to cover her pain. But I'd like to think it's the exact thing she needed to realize that there's still good in her world.

These are human beings. Little girls losing their fathers and homes. 

All in the name of war, religion, and hatred. Sickening. Absolutely sickening.
